Ali Webster, head of staff development, attended the core skills annual conference on Tuesday 24 November to receive the award. It was also revealed that we are now the 5th highest compliant trust in the whole of London.

The trust has also received special recognition for innovation in training for our scenario training work with the Automated External Defibrillator course, which is now delivered by our essential skills trainer, Andrew Jones. The training takes place on ward environments to mimic realistic ward situations, enabling staff to better transfer their skills.

The training now takes place on Pearl Ward (St Bernard’s Hospital) and Dorchester Ward (Broadmoor Hospital).

Delegates who attended the course said: “Best defib course I have attended since starting at Broadmoor, and I still managed to gain further knowledge. It gives the feel of real situations, consolidates theory and practice, and active participation of all’.

Ali Webster said: “This is a real achievement for the whole trust, and acknowledges the work by staff and managers in gaining mandatory compliance. It was so nice to also be recognised for the innovation in our training, as this demonstrates that we are not only compliant, but achieving this whilst providing high quality training.”
